Coal ready to deliver to RGE's power plant "Russell Station".
I have signed my pottery with "Hodaka" and the year I produced after trimming except first couple years. Sometime I bump into own pot at an unexpected place , and look at the bottom to see how old it is. Most of time I can guess the year based on the clay and design I used. It also surprises me how my pottery has changed. I guess it give the pottery some sort of history, trace of me. Give me a motivation not carry dated potteries as well. (I know, I know, pottery is not fresh produce.)
I trimmed the nesting bowls today, and signed many of them with 2008 as habit. This happens every year for the first half of January.
